When I started this blog, I decided I’d join the Daring Bakers. I love trying new recipes, but it’s not very often that I make something which is a big challenge, partly because I don’t have the patience and partly because I’m worried it’ll go wrong.

But the idea had been planted in my brain, so steak and chilli mushroom sandwich was what we made 🙂 Continue Reading »

Garlic pizza bread

Garlic bread might be one of my favourite things in the whole world. I love garlic. I love bread. What’s not to like? It also has the added advantage of keeping vampires away, which is nice. Continue Reading »
